Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
There is a certain consistency in Alicia's dreary life. Her mother died giving birth to her, and her upbringing was handled by her pious Catholic father, who ran a movie theater. After living in a fantasy world for much of her childhood, she finds boarding school an uncomfortable way to come awake. Unhappy as an adult, she dies suddenly while resisting a date rape.
